The Fort Worth Public Art Program seeks emerging and established Texas-based curators of all backgrounds, working in a variety of approaches and with diverse perspectives.
Upon submission, curators or curatorial teams will enter an application pool for consideration on future projects. They may be contacted to conceptualize, assist with artist selection and/or act as a project consultant for new public artworks for eligible projects of various scopes, timelines and budgets in Fort Worth.
The purpose of this call is to provide a streamlined selection process for curators interested in assisting with public art projects throughout the city. Possible artwork opportunities include parks, libraries, fire stations, community centers and others.
Curators will be selected based on their creative approach and willingness to work collaboratively with other professionals and accept input from the community. Curators will be reviewed for consideration on a case-by-case basis for specific project needs.
Curators will first be reviewed for consideration for the Marine Creek Parkway Public Art Project, a new project initiated this spring. For a copy of the project outline, contact Michelle Richardson, project manager, by email or at 817-298-3040.
